Thank you, Father God, for Blaine Pedersen’s long service to Manitoba. Help him to continue to serve the Agricultural Communities and help him to devise strong strategies, policies and law to protect water management in Manitoba for flood management, irrigation and potable water sources. Give wisdom and discernment to him and creative ideas to solve long standing and complex issues. Let him look to you for guidance and strategies. Help him work together with all MLAs to devise wise and effective ways to stimulate the economy while protecting the health of Manitobans. Guard him and his family and make him an effective steward of the resources he has charge over. Thank you, Lord, that you answer prayer in Jesus’ name. Amen.
